Today is my birthday.
I remember thinking when I was in high school, "Holy shit, in the year 2015 I'll be turning 25 years old. I wonder what I'll be up to." and here I am. yes here we are, twenty five, you smug bastard. I'm kidding, I'm kidding.
I've noticed that the older I get, the more I analyze my birthday, you know.. what I've learned, what things I should change, what I want to accomplish in the year to come... adult things... but I like that about myself. Thinking back to even a year ago I feel like I was a completely different person. no, i definitely was. I didn't even start this blog until I was halfway into being 24. I started new opportunities with my job, I got my own place, I met the love of my life, booked some amazing photo shoots, made so many friendships and bettered myself by learning from my past. Who wouldn't be grateful for those things?
My better half surprised me with an early birthday gift last weekend and I am still freaking out over it. The man tracked down a Polaroid Land Camera (my dream camera since i was 15 years old) and had a friend restore it. I am far too lucky to have him in my life. I think I've gone through almost 3 packs of film so far and it's been, what? 6 days. Ha.
He knows me better than I know myself sometimes. I love you Spence.
So get ready to start seeing some film shots on my blog from now on. I'm sure you'll be okay with it, and if not, too bad. Doin' it anyways. ;) suck it.
There's a lot I'm looking forward to in year 25, but most of all I'm just excited to live. I'm excited to explore and make so many memories and grow. I'm adult-ing so hard right now... make it stop, ew.
Thank you to all of my followers; all the friends I've gained along the way since I started this journey. So grateful for every single one of you. I'm excited for all the things I have to share with you. I hope you are too.
